Buffalo’s ever-resurging bar/restaurant scene welcomed its newest addition last week, when Allen Burger Venture officially opened its doors.
Inspired by hipster havens in New York, Chicago, and Montreal, owner Mike Shatzel’s latest venture is the realization of an idea that had been brewing long before he opened Blue Monk or Liberty Hound.
“This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time,” Shatzel told me. “[Chef] Dino DeBell, my partner, and I—we’ve been talking about this for probably 10 years.”
